I've been rocking some form of a Halo B (dif board, cone, etc.) for a while, and since it feeds well over 12.5 just fine I never really "needed" to upgrade. But the spire intrigued me.

Most people are quick to voice their anger, so I often listen to what others say about products, and I've heard too many issues with both rotors and prophs for me to make the jump. However, most everything I've heard about the spire has been highly positive, so another reason to jump to the spire. I'm not a back player, but seeing the 260 as about the same size of a rotor, with the spire having the spire goodness, I think I'm sold! I like the idea of having more off the break, and if I pod early, I can make a longer run/more moves, without having to reload. I've been on the lucky end of bunkering right after running out of paint, so almost 1/2 a pod extra is nice.

I love being able to have 260 rounds off the break, and during the match. I played a lot of different spots in Dallas PSP with this loader. No issues what so ever.

Great product by Virtue, I was very excited when Mike from Virtue approached me and asked me about using this. Was like a kid in a candy store

Thank you Virtue for all that you do!
Love this

I don't really think ill end up using the smaller shell so it would be cool if I didn't have too spend an extra 30 or so to get the larger shell in addition to the virtue spire.

Those^^

Hey Virtue, true story: if you come out with a 260 spire (not just shell) and crown deal, I'd buy.

Yes the release has been asked. I really hope this releases before World Cup! This one will finally pull me over from the rotor.

The pod empties at the same speed unless your loader is already close to full...

I converted from a Rotor high top. I am very pleased and haven't really missed the small loss. I don't think I will go to the higher capacity as the standard spire is great and sits in the middle of the two rotor versions.

its removable..take your spire apart, and their is a screw at the bottom of the shell strait down..that lets you take it off..its a pain in the butt to put back together

I wish it would come out before world cup. The ramp and spring are the icing on the cake, as the last few balls in the loader always need a shake to encourage them to find their way to the loading queue.

  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
